photo booth friday - it isn't ALL good.

Me 'n' PickleBoy, Balboa Arcade, Newport Beach 2004

As the counterpoint to last week's poignant poem and post from darling little Mr. PickleBoy, today, I exhibit the above photo and following anecdote. If this photo were taken seriously it sums up our yesterday perfectly. Our expressions were similar - and not so funny - last night when we had an all-out-mother-son-throw-down-drama-fest-doozy-of-a-fight. Over basicly nothing.

We are ok now - he needs to watch the disrespectful "YA whatEVers" and I need to watch the overreactive super pissed off "I'M the adult" thing. You know, they don't hand you a manual for this stuff. I do know that I will not do this whole thing the way my parents did. And I told him that and many other things before bedtime. And it's all good again and, see people, he is a normal kid :)

Other photobooth friday goodness:

JesC (in Paris!)
The Whole Self
Woof Nanny (close enough, my darling, my heart is with you :)

I have self appointed me as a guest hostess again this week as I haven't heard yet how hula fared with her big move. Let me know if I didn't find your pbf pic this week and I'll get you on here, k?

I hear you girl, I really do. Being a bit overly emotional as I am, my 5 y.o. and I have some serious conflicts when she's tired and I'm distracted. It's damn hard being the parent/adult all the time and when you have a smart, sensitive kid........feh.

I love this photo even better than the smiley ones, because it's so real.

oh, thank you! thank you for doing this. I've been so buried these last couple of weeks. everything is upside down crazy and now our email isn't working. aaarrrgghhh. so happy to see this... thank you so much, sweet girl. I think I should be on for tomorrow although I may post late in the day.

as for the photobooth shot, oh yes. so good. I'm predicting monumental arguments with ava and ezra. right now I'm wondering who I'll end up clashing with more...
